Who doesn’t like Top 10 lists? I love them. And so does Time Magazine. Every year, Time publishes the Top Ten lists of the year for every category or topic you can think of.

Top 10 Everything of 2011: In 54 wide-ranging lists, TIME surveys the highs and lows, the  good and the bad, of the past 12 months.

Some of the ones I enjoyed the most include:

  • Top Ten Apologies (#1 Anthony Weiner / Weinergate, #10 Pope Benedict)
  • Top Ten Business Blunders (#1 Netflix, #4 Sony for the month-long post-hack outage of their Playstation network, #8 HP for pulling their tablet)
  • Top Ten Comebacks (#1 Gabby Giffords, #2 NKOTBSB, #10 Jessica Simpson)
  • Top Ten Fiction Books (#1 A Dance with Dragons, George R.R.Martin)
  • Top Ten Gadgets (#1 Apple iPad 2)
  • Top Ten Medical Breakthrough (#1 Use cloning to create stem cells, #2 first-ever Malaria vaccine, #4 the new food pyramid is a plate)
  • Top Ten Memes (#1 We are the 99 Percent/Occupy, #2 Planking, #3 Princess Beatrice’s Fascinator, #4 Winning by Charlie Sheen)
  • Top Ten Best Tweets (#1 Bin Laden’s death: “So I’m told by a reputable person they have killed Osama Bin Laden.

When the end of the year draws near I look back over the past year. Similarly, it’s also a time to look ahead and make plans for the year to come. In my last post, I highlighted the things and events that made 2010 special. Below are some of the things that will likely make 2011 memorable:

  • In Apri l2011. we’re hoping to go on a cruise with any family and friends who want to go. The more the merrier!
  • Spend New Year’s in Vegas and start off 2011 with a bang!
  • Have more friends and family over for visits.
  • Attend more wine festivals.
  • More shopping trips and girls’ weekends.
  • At least one visit back to Montreal for Zach’s baptism and other family events.
  • Finish my cooking challenge and finally cook the last few recipes.
  • Visit the Harry Potter theme park at Universal in Florida.
  • Enjoy another hot summer by the pool.
  • Grow more vegetables.

Looking forward to another great year!
